We really enjoyed our stay at Kerry and Michele's cottage in Poipu! We stayed for 3 nights in late April. Michele was very helpful leading up to our trip and really made us feel welcome. The cottage is very nicely decorated--we loved the big, screened in main room, and the comfortable bedroom and private outdoor shower--and there were so many thoughtful touches, from a kitchen stocked with coffee, fresh fruit, yogurt, and other snacks, to toiletries available for your use, to beach towels, to a fire pit all ready to go for your enjoyment. You can (and we did) walk to the Poipu Beach Park from the cottage. The walk takes about 15 minutes through a park and quiet neighborhood, but is a little tricky with a surfboard on a windy day! Despite being able to walk to the beach, we'd definitely recommend having a rental car to get around Poipu and Koloa, as most things are not within walking distance. Michele was a great host, and we really appreciated all of her tips about how to make the most of our time on Kauai!
For an authentic 'live like the locals' experience, stay here.
The house is located across the lawn from the owners Michele and Kerry, who may I add are such a lovely couple, they are there if you need them but give you space and privacy to do your own thing.
The lounge room has no walls, just fly screens, so you feel at one with the beautiful landscaped gardens around you. The lounge room includes cable tv, pool table, table tennis and a kitchenette. It was a little damp one morning but other than that we really enjoyed the openness of the room.
The bedroom is closed off like a normal room just down the deck with an ensuite and outdoor shower.
Michele and Kerry have thought of everything. They provided a fridge full of snacks for our arrival, they have beach chairs and an umbrella (which was very handy as we were traveling with our baby) and a crib for the baby. They even had a Christmas tree, which was a nice touch.
The house is located about a 15 minute walk to the beach through suburban streets, you don't have to take the busy road.
We lived staying here and highly recommend it.
Thank you Nicole! We were sorry we missed the opportunity to say goodbye to you :(
We hope you enjoyed your time on Kauai, and that you were able to fit in that helicopter ride on one of the nice sunny days.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year! - Michele & Kerry
Hadn't had the chance to meet Kerry and Michele but the place was very nice, clean and our experience was wonderful overall! I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Kauai!
Kerry and Michele's place wa one of our favourites during our stay. The family integrated us into their life and we felt very welcomed. The place is equipped with eveything you need for a nice stay on Kauai'i. By the way our favourite island. So come and see by yourselves.
Thank you Tom for your kind review! We had a wonderful time getting to know you and your family. It was insightful to have dinner with you, and enjoyed talking about Berlin. Hopefully we will get to come your way someday soon. Come visit us again when we can get your little boy Max out on a surfboard! We send you our fondest regards and warm breezes from Kauai - Kerry & Michele
The cottage and Dillbergs were wonderful. The unit was clean and comfortable. The lawn was impressive and we enjoyed using the fire pit one evening. I would stay here again as a launching point for south island activities and Waimea canyon. It's an easy drive down to the Sheraton or other resort properties and beaches. Cons: the road noise was pretty loud and privacy could be improved.
This property and the hosts couldn't be lovelier. The "cottage" is just as pictured although they don't do the property justice. The sprawing lawn, blossoming trees and fire pit make this spot super homey. We loved the openness of the main room and the privacy of the bedroom/bath/shower. Michele was extremely welcoming and was kind enough to stop by and point out a few highlights of the house and nearby areas. The surrounding scenery is beautiful and it was nice to walk the short distance to Poipu Beach.
Such a wonderful place. Kerry & Michele were the perfect mix of welcoming, involved, and respectful of our privacy. The cottage was gorgeous and in perfect condition. We were welcomed w/ open arms and will certainly return if back in Kauai (which is likely).
